The much-anticipated series will return fresh off a monumental 15th season which saw an unprecedented virtual audition process, the first-ever DCC Summer Training Camp inside a “bubble,” and the most veteran cuts in show history. With more auditions and contestants than ever before, the competition is stiff and the pressure remains at an all-time high as the candidates work to perfect new technically-challenging routines to impress longtime coaches Kelli Finglass and Judy Trammell to earn an esteemed spot on the field. Guest choreographers will be revealed at a later date.
